No NC for Auburn, Bama Wins Iron Bowl

TUSCALOOSA - In what was seen as a disappointing first season for the rookie coach with losses to Hawaii at home and only 1 road win, Alabama Legend Joe Namath may have saved his job with a 17-7 Iron Bowl victory over #1 ranked and undefeated Auburn. Much credit should be given to the Alabama D, who shut down eventual Heisman winner Courtney Taylor to only 2 receptions for 42 yards. What was even more impressive was that star RB, Kenny Irons only ran for 11 yards. Darby clearly won the battle of the Ken's running for an impressive 147 yards and 2 TDs and earning Iron Bowl MVP honors. John Parker Wilson, controlled the pace of the game as he was a solid 12-17 with 152 yards, proving all along that he should have been starter from Day 1.

Zooming a couple of weeks ahead

Alabama is now headed to the Peach Bowl for a match-up against Florida St. The SEC title game featured two teams that could not beat the Tide, Florida and Auburn. Also noteworthy is that Auburn and Florida were both ranked #1 when they faced Alabama. The Gators took the SEC title with the return of Chris Leak, winning 22-17. Clearly the heartbreaking Iron Bowl defeat still lingered in Auburn's mind. Courtney Taylor ended up winning the Heisman, but clearly he accepted his award in disappointment. Bama Sophmore center Antoine Caldwell took home some hardware, by winning the Rimington for best Center along with the Best OL award. So its off to the A-T-L for a match against FSU, Roll Tide


The Iron Bowl victory resulted in three key recruits signing with the Tide. Tuscaloosa product, C Casey Maynard, will be a key back up next year to Caldwell (assuming he doesn't bolt for the NFL). Meadowbrook, Alabama's Derek Green will fill an immediate need at FS and Mississippi standout Zach Saint Preux will add depth to the D-Line. Auburn managed to land the #1 CB in Joel Roberson out of Georgia.

As for Broadway Mylosh, he finally has a day off and is gonna enjoy his Iron Bowl victory and is gonna watch some NASCAR and play Tennis & some ball with Jorden. here enjoy this Iron Bowl intro.


  • NICE! Great job on the Iron Bowl Win - it's so much sweeter when you can screw over your rival's season...honestly I'd rather have Arizona go 1-10 and beat ASU who was 10-0 and ranked #1 going into the game...

    awesome job...yeah..

  • Hey man, got linked here from OS. Nice little blog here, sorry to hear my Tide didn't do so well in the first year though. Tell Namath to get off the sauce and focus o n the playbook.
